    I've just got my own MBP 13" after having a school loaner for a couple of months. When I used the school loaner the battery capacity decreased to 95% in the course of 4 months.

    I don't want the same thing to happen to my new MBP. I don't have a real need of using the battery except 2 times a week (when I go teach). So, I can plug it in 99% of the times that I use it.

    What's the best way to conserve the battery capacity? Should I use it plugged in most of the time?

    Just use it as normal, the batteries are built to last.

    Just make sure to calibrate the battery every few months

    Completely deplete the charge until it goes to sleep and then completely charge it to full.
